Jason Kousoukis of the Age has written a badly titled piece which is sure to upset his blinkered fellow journalist, Paul McGeough - Israeli PM set to shift raid blame

In the early hours of May 31, Israeli commandos were ordered to prevent a six-ship convoy carrying humanitarian aid from breaching Israel's blockade of Gaza or entering Israeli-controlled waters.

Things began to go awry after several of the commandos who were lowered on to the deck of the convoy's lead ship, the Turkish-flagged Mavi Marmara, were attacked by some of the passengers. Other commandos were sent aboard the same vessel with orders to save the lives of their comrades, shooting dead nine passengers and injuring more than 30 others.

Some of the peacenik passengers attacked Israeli soldiers?

So who is to blame and what does McGeough who thinks those passengers who beat up the soldiers with metal pipes, knives and metallic slingshots are as pure as the driven snow?
